For someone who feels as though a cheese-grater is moving slowly through their body, I feel that I’ve accomplished rather a lot today. During the ever-pleasant headache I managed to complete a Poncho/Cape which I’ve been promising Mum for at least a year:
When my headache turned into a rather suspicious stomach ache, I decided to hole-up in the living room with my knitting and managed to complete the rather subtle computer-game motif which will grace my brother’s birthday tank-top. Yes. He asked for a tank top.
The tank top actually follows the same pattern as my last project – the wicked sweater – did. Despite using the same needles and the same wool, I pretended that the gauge on this was different which has cut the width by nearly 10 inches. This is perfect for my super-skinny brother who make’s S- – modelling the sweater – look like a big fat blob.
Anyways, such is my day so far. I plan to return to snoozing in the sun on the sofa now, enjoying the beginning of the barbecue season as it signals the end of my annual cooking shift. Man food from now until October! Hooray!
